city right now apparently growing larger and larger. let's go to arwa damon on the scene for us. set the scene, tell our viewers what's going on. >> reporter: well, wolf, if you were to look at the street below us 24 hours ago, you would have seen that it was utterly deserted. we're hearing sirens right now. and for the first time since this conflict began, it is not because they're heading to the scene of an air strike. there's a traffic jam down below. for some it is celebrating what they do view as being a victory for them. for others it is celebrating the fact that they quite simply are able to finally leave their homes for the first time since this all began. we were down there just a short while ago. entire families have packed themselves into their vehicles for the first time not because they are fleeing violence but quite simply because they can go outside without fear of perhaps being targeted in some sort of strike or finding themselves very close to where a strike was going to be taking place. we spoke to one father who said his children had begged him the minute they hear
where this bus exploded. right now, police are telling us that they are still looking for potential suspects, we see a helicopter in the sky. there's been a lot of confusion, a lot of rumors, as to who may have done this. even rumors about an arrest. there was apparently an arrest made but they're not saying whether that arrest has anything to do with this particular incident. but police said we did not have any indication that there was going to happen in tel aviv. they're always on alert for looking for potential suspects. so far the city after the blast has been quiet. the police are combing the area, looking for who might be responsible. now, as far as whether or not this was a suicide bomber, or a package left, we have confirmed that they do believe it was a package, some sort of a device or package left on the bus. just don't know how it got on. if someone got on the bus and left it or whether it was sitting there for some time. they're still trying to find out those details. there are people hurt. three of them who are hurt moderately. we talked to a witness on the scene who
stay with cnn for the latest on the middle east crisis and peace efforts. all for us tonight. "ac 360" starts now. and a day of dramatic developments on both sides of the border in gaza and the gaza strip and throughout israel. a lot of talk about cooling down, about a potential cease-fire. we have seen things heat up. it is very hot, indeed. a short time ago, several hours ago, many explosions just in the area behind me. i'll show you the videotape. no audio, so i'll talk over it. we didn't realize what was about to occur and we weren't recording sound during it. but a very loud blast as you see right there, basically all of us ducked down in the office. we thought that was the end of it. and our cameraman panned over. and a series of more explosions. it turns out this was a number of government buildings that is what is said to have been hit. it's not clear if those are secondary explosions or if those are multiple rockets going into the building. then started pointing out, it was not over. at that point you can hear the sound. let's listen in now. whoa. that's just the sound in
. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton in jerusalem tonight. she arrived late and went straight to a meeting with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> america's commitment to israel's security is rock-solid, and unwavering. that is why we believe it is essential to deescalate the situation in gaza. >> deescalate the situation in gaza. what does deescalate mean? there was a spade of rockets just a moment ago, but yet that's the key word being used by the administration. during a brief press conference with prime minister netanyahu, there was no mention of a cease-fire. netanyahu said israel is prepared to take whatever action is necessary to defend itself. and egypt, which is brokering a deal between the two sides, cancelled a press conference where officials were expected to announce a deal with terms for a cease-fire. tomorrow, secretary clinton meets with the palestinian president, mahmoud abbas and then will fly to egypt to speak with president mohamed morsi. that is going to be a very interesting conversation, because, of course, as so many of you are aware, morsi is in a t
blast, as you see right there, basically all of us ducked down in the office. we thought that was the end of it. neal, our cameraman, panned over and then a series of more explosions. turns out this was a number of government buildings that is what is said to have been hit. it's not clear if those are secondary explosions or if those are multiple rockets going into the building. i then started pointing out it was not over at that point. you can't hear the sound but let's listen in now. [ explosions ] >> that's just the sound, the tail end of it, the last few seconds which we were able to capture on tape. we did not think we were on the air during all this time which is why we weren't recording sound, but you heard how loud the blasts were at the end. consider how loud the blasts were even earlier when we weren't recording sound. really an enormous series of blasts. the percussion of it, you could feel for many, many blocks. a huge cloud of smoke blanketed the entire area here in central gaza for several blocks. we don't have information on casualties, if there were any, o
to a couple teenagers who have the worst of the injuries. we talked to the e.r. doctor who told us one of the teenagers may lose a limb, perhaps an arm because of the soft tissue that's been blasted away. also a lot of shrapnel wounds in the face. both may face a lifetime of disability. those are his words. we talked to the police, more still looking for a suspect, trying to find out who was responsible. we saw the bus before testify driven away. all the windows had been blasted out. we know that here at the hospital they've been quite busy trying to make sure they can do as much as they can for these patients. the good news is no one is expected to lose their life, but certainly a lot of fear here in the streets of tel aviv. >> sara, this is the first time i think in about six years or so since 2006 there's been a major terrorist attack in the commercial heart of israel in tel aviv, and we know there are various groups praising this operation, but as far as the responsibility is concerned, what are israeli police or military officials telling telling you? >> reporter: they are telling
pleitgen where sirens have been going off earlier. and joining us is ben wedeman in the gaza strip, gaza city. fred, what are you seeing now in ashkelon? >> reporter: >> from ted pleitgen, have the rockets stopped in ashkelon? >> reporter: the rockets, yes, have stopped in ashkelon. it was interesting, because up until about a minute before our broadcast began, there were still booms that were heard in the sky. and about ten minutes ago we had to run for cover in ashkelon. now it appears as though things are quiet. i can tell you from speaking to people here on the ground, they're telling us this he don't really believe in this cease-fire just yet at this point in time. folks that we're speaking to at this cafe who have been watching the speech of prime minister benjamin netanyahu say they believe this is not a solution to the problem that they are going to be having to face rockets falling on their heads very soon again, anderson. >> i'm also joined here in jerusalem with cnn's wolf blitzer. we'll be monitoring developments over this crucial next hour. this next hour really key to what
the scene for us this morning and how important mr. morsi is in the solution we see here. >> reporter: yeah, christine, this is another critical day in this conflict. a lot of people anxious to see what happens in the coming hours. it's a little after 12:00 noon cairo time and in a couple of hours secretary clinton is scheduled to arrive in cairo meeting with the egyptian president mohammad morsi as well as the arab league. whenever big conflicts happen in the middle east, washington wants to be seen as playing a major role as peacemaker. that is clearly why mrs. clinton is in the region today, but it is also clear that throughout the past few days it's been egypt that's taking the lead as peacemaker. obviously, they have strong links to hamas and they also have links with israel with that peace treaty they have promised to abide by. so they seem to be logical peacemaker. yesterday they were optimistic that a cease-fire would be established. mr. morsi says he expects the aggression to stop. obviously, christine, that didn't happen. heavy fighting throughout the night and the early morning h
